Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan
I hit a deer the other day. I replaced the radiator and one headlight. How do I test to see if my radiator fan still works? It has a few breaks in the cage but I think I can tape them or glue them. Fan itself still turns. The middle of the fan was hit fairly hard against the radiatior. Trying not to put a ton of money in the van but I need to last me for about 8 months. Darrell
First, DO NOT tape the "cage" if it is still intact, you can try special glues that are sold in auto body supply houses. You don't want the thing coming apart, at night, 100 miles from help.
Try junk yards, they usually sell the fan shrouds fairly cheap, that failing try after market, I've bought complete fan assy. for around a $100, most a little more.
As to testing, you can - WITH CARE- connect temporary wiring using crimp connectors. The fan will have a plug close to it, you can almost always make a connection there.
The first tip will work if you have a single fan setup.
